Christopher D. Salvo
Christopher D. Salvo was born in Buffalo, NY and soon after his birth,
began to show his interest and fascination with sound. By the age of two years old,
Chris had his favorite toy, the plastic turntable and record collection. Not the
ideal instrument of choice, but occasionally he would find his way into his parent’s
12” collections and of course their turntables. At nine years old, Chris
progressed to the guitar, where he took professional lessons in music for several years.
When Chris was about thirteen, he began playing out in clubs and bars as a guitarist
for a punk/hardcore band and was the youngest by far of anyone else in the band.
After experiencing music from the view of writing, and not stringent theory, Chris
abandoned music lessons and music theory to return to the basics of sound,
“What sounds good to me”? Chris stopped playing in bands by the age of
seventeen because of changing music interests and constant band member conflicts
that were taking away from the music experience. After a few years of music writing
hiatus and the studying of different genres such as ambient, downtempo,
experimental electronic, electronica, IDM, house, and breakbeats, Chris began
to regress to a child and practice with those turntables again. After only a short
period of time with a professional set of turntables, Chris had his first weekly dj
residency at a club in Buffalo at the age of 22, where he was playing the genres
downtempo, house, and breakbeats. Only after a couple years, Chris had
three weekly residencies, and was enjoying his return to the music scene.
Even though performing was an enjoyment in itself, Chris felt that he was
still not expressing his creative energy to its fullest. In 2004, Chris purchased
and assembled his first project studio, which he has been upgrading
throughout the years. From that point on, Chris took more of a focus on
the production side of music again and focused less on djing. He still
occasionally does dj as a guest or at his current bi-weekly residency
in Buffalo, NY again, but he sees himself doing more of the production and
writing side of music for the years to come. Being influenced by such artists
as Sasha, Deepdish, Ozgur Can, Chris Lake, DNTEL, Lali Puna, Nitin Sawhney,
Caia, St. Germain, Blue Six, Miguel Migs, and his favorite compilation
series Café del Mar, Chris continues to write and produce music by
what he feels is the basics, “What sounds good to me”?
